Streets & Sidewalks

The City owns and maintains most, but not all, of the residential streets and sidewalks within City limits. The City regularly repairs pot holes, patches cement, clears storm drains, fixes trip hazards and maintains center line stripes and other traffic and parking painting.  

Maintenance Requests


Street and sidewalk maintenance can only be performed by the government with jurisdiction over the street or sidewalk. Below is a list of the streets maintained by Prince George's County and the Maryland State Highway Administration. All other maintenance issues can be handled by the City and requests should be made by calling (301) 985-5032. The only exceptions are streets owned and maintained by condominium associations, shopping centers, businesses, or apartments.
